Panthers TE Greg Olsen to return Week 6

Saturday, October 13, 2018, 5:03pm

Tiffany Blackmon - [Full Article]

Panthers team source tells NFL Network as of now, Greg Olsen is playing and they are planning to start him tomorrow. They said Olsen has had no setbacks so far, that he’s had a good week.

Fantasy Impact:

We are concerned Olsen will not play a full load of snaps in his return from another foot injury. That keeps him out of our TE1 options for Week 6. In his first game back from injury last year, Olsen only played 34 percent of snaps, catching just one of four targets.

Scouting Report

Week 6 at Washington Redskins

If Greg Olsen returns from injury this week, he has the potential to be a sneaky start for fantasy owners needing help at the tight end position. While he’s worth a speculative add to most rosters, he’s risky to count on right out of the gate. His foot supposedly will still need surgery at some point, which makes it unlikely he can go back to being one of the steadiest fantasy tight ends in the league. A wait-and-see approach is recommended this week.
